The perfect balance of how often to wash your hair can be difficult to find – wash too much and your hair can end up dry and brittle, wash too little and it will look dirty and lifeless. So how often should you wash your hair? There’s a few things to take into consideration.
Different hair types and textures require particular care, so how often you wash your hair is no different! Thicker strands can go a bit longer than thin hair. Curly hair tends to be drier meaning it can also go longer without washing.
Level of Activity:
Here’s the reality, the more active you are, the more often you’ll need to wash your hair. If you frequent the gym, sweat piles up, clogs your pores and dirties your scalp and roots faster than those who are less active.
Generally speaking, drier hair types should be shampooed about twice a week while oily hair types may need to be washed daily. If you have dark hair, washing only twice a week will help keep the pigments in your hair from fading. Darker hair color shines for longer and shampooing too often can ruin that natural shine.
Dry Shampoo can help in between washes as it absorbs dirt, dust, and excess oil, leaving your hair feeling and smelling freshly washed. Dry shampoo can also add texture and fullness to your hair!
If you wash your hair every day, you’re stripping down its natural oils. The less you wash your hair, the more it trains itself to adapt to fewer washes. So how often should you wash your hair? Shampoo and condition it every 2-3 days and you should be just fine! If you have any questions, give us a call at 610-489-2049.
